Is the CZ P07 9mm a good gun?

51019 14
My wife and I visited Buds Gun Shop last week and I had the opportunity to hold a CZ P07. I was very impressed with the way it felt, I could tell it was a very high quality firearm especially for the low price of $439 new in box. I have never owned or even seen a newer CZ firearm around here, and I have read that CZ is fairly new to manufacturing polymer firearms. I am mainly concerned about how well the P07 will hold up to long term use. I haven't seen any comments concerning this. Does anyone have any experience with this firearm?

The P-07 is actually CZ's second venture into the polymer framed guns. The first was back in the mid 90's with the CZ100 and 110 models. They were DAO hammerless guns with a proprietary rail system. They didn't fare well in the market at the time and were dropped from the line.

I have and carry a P-07 on a daily basis. It replaced my P-01 as my EDC. The reason behind switching was I carry at work, and work in a warehouse. I wanted something that wasn't going to get banged up in the work environment. The gun has been completely reliable. Only draw back that it has IMO is the availability of after market night sight. Only place available that I'm aware of is through CZ and last I checked, they were out of stock. I do like the fact it can be converted from a safety operation to a decocker model in about 5 minutes with only a small screw driver. Mine came with both the safety lever and decocker lever. Well worth the money they're asking for it.

Hope this helps.

Also be aware that the CZ P07 has had recent modifications. The older model is the CZ P07 "Duty" and you will see that stamped on the slide. The newer models do not have "Duty" on the slide. I've seen quite a price differential between the old and newer model.

CZ makes great guns.

I've not heard a bad word about the second generation "B" series P-07 Duty pistols.
Mine has ran well so far, but I have less than 100 through it.


The newer and some say improved P-07 is gaining fans fast.

I think you can buy P-07 Nites from CZ-USA.

They had them in stock for my gun as posted on CZF:


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello, it was hectic week and and even more wild weekend, or at least by our standards.


Firstly, my slide arrived back from CZ-USA with Nites installed.


Here are some more pics:


They usually require a person to send in the gun so they can test them with the gun.


However, I've never had a problem with them being off to any degree, except the front sight on my RAMI P that
was quickly rectified.


The P-07 Duty (second generation B series) comes standard with 3 dot sights in white, but
some guys in South Africa and the Chech homeland have been running Nites for a few years.


I believe that Matt Hunter, installed these, as he has done the work on prior CZs of mine
like the 75 SS

and the RAMI P.




The new P-07 Nites are Tru-Dots at guess, as as the other Nites on my CZs.



I like how they are more like a true Novak type sight.

They make a good gun even better.







In comparison (total darkness) to both my Duty and my RAMI with aging Tru-Dots, the Duty Nites appear to be twice as bright.





I would like to get new Nites for my now 10 year old RAMI, but feel that it's time to retire it in favor
of a RAMI BD.


Both the decocker lever and factory Tru-Dot Nites are standard on the RAMI BD (or just D) and the CZ97 BD .45 that I would
also like to buy this year.


Add some Marschal Grips and Double Tap Ammo for the RAMI BD and it would be a sweet gun for another decade!


So, the P-07 Duty tritium sights are a worthy addition to the gun that protects my home and sees some carry.


The bad part is, that it's both good and bad.


I was saving up to buy a RAMI BD from CZ-USA ( Decoker, check, Nites, check) but my wife has been been searching for a
female dachshund for a about six months.


One called an English Cream that's a color of long haired Doxies.


They have ranged from $800-$1800 ( can you say Dan Wesson Specialist priced:) and have either been out of state,
or a online scam artist.


Luckily, we found one for her over in Idaho, about 2 hours away and the lady dropped the price




Well, I'm not sad to see my gun budget go for a puppy,(Skye) it just means I will have to scrimp to buy that RAMI BD,
and my 10 year old RAMI will have to soldier on!


You can see the Nites (mine are steel instead of plastic) at the CZ-USA webstore:

Contact [email protected] for questions, or [email protected] as well


I plan on doing some Duty accuracy testing in the next month, if we can beat the 110F + days, and get outdoors for
fishing and shooting.

In the last year I have put a couple of thousand rounds down the pipe on my P07 Duty.

My conclusion is to just simply BUY IT NOW AND DON'T LOOK BACK!

After market night sights are and issue but they can be found. Holsters are readily available from just about every maker.

Good luck!

The CZ P07 with the SKU#91086 (9mm)/ 91087 (.40S&W) I have interest in. I've shuffled my wish list around so the P07 and the Beretta PX4 Storm (FS) are at the top of the list.

Thanks for all of the replies so far. I have been wanting a CZ75 for a long time but they are very hard to find in this area. Most of the reviews that I have read concerning CZ quality have been very positive. The owner of my LGS said that he ordered some CZ's a long time ago but he had a hard time selling them and didn't order any more. My LGS mostly carries Glock(Of Course), S&W, Beretta, and Taurus products.

Oh how I would love to find an SP-01 Phantom! The P-09 is on my short list as well.

I've always been a fan of CZ but never have gotten one for one reason or another. I need to remedy that.

Lots of CZ Custom Stuff at Cajun Gun Works

Cajun Gunworks also has night sights for most if not all CZs. They worked my PCR and I will be letting them worm my P07 as funds become available.
